An Evans-based building company has been selected by ABC TV's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to build a house for an Augusta-area family in early December, Stephen Beazley, the president of Bill Beazley Homes Inc., announced Thursday.

Bill Beazley Homes will partner with Augusta-area businesses to build the home in a week as the show's host, Ty Pennington, and his crew travel to Augusta to assist with the project. ABC will choose from several finalists in the area and release the selected family's identity in early December.
